This Homemade Barbecue Sauce……it’s just like Sweet Baby Ray’s and it totally has me wishful thinking…Come on. We were almost there, we even had some nice warm sunny days. I could feel spring!

Not!

But then, yeah you guessed it. It totally snowed last night.

I am not going back to my winter ways. I am rebelling against this weather!

It is April gosh darn it!

Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Technically I know April is a little early to be breaking out the grill, but let’s just say I am getting you guys ready for that hot spring day when you decide it is time to break out the grill.

Before you know April will be over, mid May will hit and with it will come (hopefully) warm temps! Or maybe you are lucky enough to be in one of those spots where the warm weather has already arrived…lucky you.

Really is there a better way to prepare for outdoor cooking than homemade BBQ sauce!

It’s pretty much any griller’s favorite sauce.

Heck whether you are griller, broiler, Gorge Foreman lover or baker, it is still probably your favorite sauce.

Over here we grill all year round. The boys CANNOT live without their grilled chicken or steak and my dad only likes his fish grilled. Not seared, not baked and not fried. Grilled.

So our grill gets a whole lot of use.

Therefore, we also go through a whole lot of BBQ sauce. Obviously.

Hands down, around here the family favorite is Sweet Baby Ray’s.

The problem? It is filled to the brim with high fructose corn syrup! Barf.

So I made my own. And oh fudge it is good! And like ridiculously easy. It takes me ten minutes to throw together! Yes, just 10 minutes! You definitely can’t get to the store and back in 10 minutes! Plus, my guess is you have every single ingredient in your kitchen right now. Honestly, it could not be simpler and it could not taste better. Even the texture is stop on. Sweet Baby Ray himself would not be able to tell the difference.

Yeah, I am serious. It is that good.

    I’ve made this for a few years, now, and share this link often.
    I usually multiply it by 3 or 4, so it can be bottled and steam-canned or water bathed in small bottles for the pantry shelf. (About 15m, just to seal)
    Fabulous to have on hand.

    1. Hey Pam,

    This is our “go to” family BBQ sauce, after MANY years of being staunch SBR snobs. Lol If we want it to be on the spicy side, after it cools I’ll blend it up with 1 or 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Makes it irresistible!
    I make it in at least double batches and it keeps for a couple of months (if it lasts that long!!)
    Time for another batch, as 4th of July is this weekend and we go through a TON of sauce on our ribs, brisket, and chicken.
    Thanks for the recipe!
